Digital Equity Playbook: How City Leaders Can Bridge the Digital Divide
December 9, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Broadband has evolved from a cutting-edge luxury to an absolute essential for participation in daily life. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to the benefits of this vital tool. This must change. With more funding and attention dedicated to broadband than ever before, cities have the opportunity to proactively work to bridge the digital divide in their communities.
The National League of Cities’ forthcoming Digital Equity Playbook will help city leaders determine the causes of the digital divide in their communities, shares recommendations to address it, highlight stories from other local government leaders and provide additional resources to consider in this work. Join this webinar to learn more about this resource and NLC’s plans to support cities in addressing the digital divide.
